    Ellen Voorhees, Vice-Chair

    I am the current chair of the Arbuckle Parks and Recreation District. My husband Michael and I have been living in Arbuckle for the past 25 years. We are almond farmers and have three children. Jake is in his second year at Duke, our daughter Riley is in her first year at Cal Poly, SLO and Luke is an 8th grader at Johnson Junior High. I have been involved in the APRD since it's conception and this is my third term as a board member. Providing recreational opportunities for our community is of utmost importance to me and our entire board strives to bring the best possible programs to our district, while maintaining the parks and operation the swimming pool.
